The Ugly Truth about the Covid-19 lockdowns

PANDA’s co-founder, Nick Hudson, was the keynote speaker at the March 2021 inaugural BizNews Investment Conference in South Africa. The presentation, "Time To Reopen Society" begins with the early days of the pandemic recalling the confusion, the conflicting information, the ever-changing recommendations. By following the data and official communications from global organisations, PANDA unravels what transpired that led us into deleterious lockdowns, which continue to have enormous negative impacts across the world. This presentation negates the fear and gives clear reasons why ‘the only thing we have to fear is fear itself’ in the story of the COVID-19 pandemic response.
